 +Not having a great time with the kernal'​s OOM((__O__ut-__O__f-__M__emory)) Killer at the moment; it's not doing the job I expected it to, and I'm getting freezes when I get down to about 1GB of RAM.
 +
 +There are three userspace solutions I've read about:
 +  * **[[The Early OOM Daemon]]** | [[git>​rfjakob/​earlyoom]] [[aur>​earlyoom]]
 +  * **[[nohang]]** | [[git>​hakavlad/​nohang]] [[aur>​nohang-git]]
 +  * **[[oomd]]** | [[git>​facebookincubator/​oomd]] [[aur>​oomd]] [[aur>​oomd-git]]
 +
 +The main memory hog is me having a lot of tabs open in [[Firefox]],​ which in combination with [[Electron]] garbage and other hoggy things like a second web browser and [[Thunderbird]] '​causes most of the problems. Sometimes I even forget I have all those things up and start playing a game :/
